Water Street Flat in Washington Richard Williams Architects

Water Street Flat is an apartment in Washington, US, modified and renovated by Richard Williams Architects.

Project description: Location, location, location—yes; but all the potential amenities of ample space, unrivaled views, and natural light were blocked or denied by the original build-out of this 4,000 SF apartment overlooking the Georgetown Waterfront rendering it curiously indifferent to its extraordinary setting.

In this interior alteration project, the architect and new owner pushed the amenities to the forefront by reducing the program (4 bedrooms to 3), moving the kitchen (so as not to block the view of the river from the entry), and generally improving circulation and opening up vistas.

The new build-out features an expansive living room parallel to the Potomac River, a new formal dining space through which one takes in the view upon entry, and a strengthened cross-axis entry space that leads to the penthouse stair and the 1,000 SF roof terrace above.
